Unsigned permutations were the first combinatorial model of genomes for the study of rearrangements, and are still used when the orientation of the markers is not known. This chapter discusses transposition distance; prefix transposition distance; reversal distance; prefix reversal distance (pancake-flipping); variants; and relations between distances on unsigned permutations.

Keywords:   combinatorial models, genomes, transposition distance, reversal distance
